The license agreement provided on the last paper page of the Microsoft Windows NT 4.0 Workstation Resource Kit states the following in the "agreement" section:
- GRANT OF LICENSE. Microsoft grants to you the right to use one copy of the Microsoft software program included with this book (the "SOFTWARE") on a single terminal connected to a single computer....

NOTE: The above excerpt is not an official written license agreement for any Microsoft or Microsoft Press product. There are other changes to the license agreement wording that are not listed here.
For the correct Windows NT 4.0 Workstation Resource Kit license agreement, please refer to the Windows NT 4.0 Server Resource Kit license agreement. If you do not have the Windows NT 4.0 Server Resource Kit, please contact Microsoft Press through e-mail at MSPINPUT@MICROSOFT.COM or send a letter request to:
